1.0 out of 5 stars Poor text quality - as though it has been scanned in December 31, 2011
By Mr
I subscribe to the Telegraph which is very high quality digital newspaper. It is that quality that highlights the low standard of this digital magazine. In 2011 I subscribed to the paper version of PC World. It's a good magazine. However, the digital version is not optimized in any way. Its very disappointing. Navigation is clunky. When zoomed in for reading, the text quality is poor (fuzzy with shadows). All in all frustrating. I will stick with the paper version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Format January 8, 2012
The magazine and its content are very good however the implementation of the digital format on the Kindle Fire is poorly done. My one star is based 100% on the poor formatting.

Each page is shown as a full page on the Kindle Fire, you see the same page as printed in the magazine, only smaller, a lot smaller and way to small for reading. So you have to zoom and then manually move page around. You can only zoom in so far and thats it. The quality of the text when zoomed in is fuzzy.

Its disappointing that a technology publication (PC World) and Amazon could not get this right.

1.0 out of 5 stars PC World App no longer works properly in 2015 February 12, 2015
In a nutshell - the PC World app broke approximately October 2014, and the recent revised version is even worse. I've lost access to issues I paid for, and PC World had not answered my email. A good example of the worst way to provide and online magazine.

I've been a PC World subscriber for years. Soon after I bought my Kindle, I downloaded the Kindle app which was free for magazine subscribers. I found the display on the app to be satisfactory. It was nice to be able to have access to the past year's issues on my Kindle; I no longer needed to store the paper version. All of that changed late in 2014. When I tried to download the current issue, the app said it needed a new version of "MIB" (whatever that was). I could still see the issues previously downloaded, but none of the newer issues.

I contacted PC World and was advised to delete the app and download another copy. I was afraid I would lose access to the issues already downloaded, but I also wanted the current issues. So, I took the PC World advice and deleted the app and downloaded the current version. I immediately found that all previous versions were no longer available. Even worse, new versions still were blocked because the "MIB" version still wasn't working.

A few weeks later, a new version of the app was placed on my Kindle. I was able to see quite a few back issues (all had to be downloaded) along with the current issue; February 2015. I downloaded the February 2015 issue and found it worked well. I then tried to download issues prior to February 2015 - all said download. The download took 5-10 minutes, and I then had two choices: Cancel and Read. The progress meter stopped at 99%. Cancel immediately deleted the issue just downloaded. Read displayed the issue just downloaded.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced January 20, 2012
I'd definitely prefer to have the native Kindle Fire version of PC World, but it is priced $10/year higher than the magazine's standard price for the Zinio-based digital edition (and, amazingly, $15/year more than the print version). Since Zinio works on the Fire, I can't justify that extra $10.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its been great until now.... January 25, 2015
By George
Been a digital subscriber for almost two years, but when I tried to download the January 2015 issue I get "Incompatible MIB version. Please upgrade the application and try again.This app requires the MIB version to at least v4.4" Say what? When I go into "About PCWorld" it states:
Version: 1.0.1
Mag+ MIB version: 4.4
Mag+ bulid 4.0.647.

I uninstalled the app from my Kindle Fire (1st Gen) and from the cloud. Reinstalled the app and still get the same message. Even deleted cache to no avail. I'm able to download and read past issues without problems.

My last issue is March 2015. Hopefully its just a problem with the January issue. If problem still persists with February and March issues, will try PC Mag instead. Shame, because I really liked the digital content and presentation of PC World.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Mag for Kindle Fire HD February 22, 2013
By dr.igor
Firstly, there is some bad hype on other reviews for this product.

They state that it is not easily view-able on the kindle. At this time, that hype is exactly that, false.
This magazine come across crystal clear, just like all others that I have tried on my Kindle Fire HD.

I wish that it would zoom in just a little bit more, but, when the type is too small, a quick double tap puts it in the easy to read/customize (ebook like) format.

Second, the product is just pretty awesome for two bucks an issue. Between the reviews, commentary, and insight, it is well worth the money.

And as with all other kindle Mags there is a free 30 subscription, I don't think you can go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars PCWorld Is What It Says January 7, 2014
Very informative technology magazine. It is exactly as its description. Also, works very well in digital content. I have it on my Kindle Fire HDX and I found no problems navigating through the issue. Easy to read and also easy to backtrack to different parts of the edition. A++++++++++++++++

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware! September 20, 2013
By Tommy J
I was a subscriber to the magazine, then suddenly they went digital without warning. I downloaded the App for my Kindle. It is flaky. I finally got it to download an issure. Once you get logged in don't ever logout.

I download the August issue. Now the stupid app has gone crazy and I can't get the Sept issue.

PC World was once a nice mag. Now thanks to their stupid flacky app the mag is worthless... Seems to be no support...
